Good morning! As you’re getting up conditions outside are clear with temperatures in the low/ mid-70s and winds are out of the southeast at 10-20 mph. There will be a stray chance of a shower for northern most counties through noon.
Tuesday afternoon will once again be above normal as highs remain in the mid/ upper 90s with sunny/ mostly sunny skies and have a southeasterly breeze at 10-20 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. By Tuesday night we will pick up a little cloudy cover, have lows in the mid-70s and there will be a 10 percent chance of isolated thundershowers for northernmost counties.
Wednesday through Friday look like they will have highs a bit cooler in the mid-90s with mostly sunny skies and have winds mainly out of the south at 5-15 mph through this time. Overnight lows are expected to be in the low/ mid-70s with mostly clear conditions.
Into the weekend, on Saturday, highs will remain in the mid-90s with building cloud cover through the afternoon. Winds will switch to the southeast at 5-15 mph and there will be a 10-20 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms through the day. Saturday night the rain chances will remain and lows will be in the lower 70s with partly cloudy conditions. A low severe weather threat is expected at this time.
Currently, for Sunday and Monday, it looks like the state could see some tropical moisture move. This would bring the Big Country a 20-30 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms both days with the possibility of isolated severe weather.
